Wanted: Icon Skillz

I need a Numb3rs icon, and clearly only one particular type will suffice.  However, I've noticed Charlie/Amita icons are extraordinarily hard to find.  With that in mind, I determined for myself - several months ago - exactly what I wanted for my necessary Numb3rs icon.  Finally took the screencap, resized it to the best of my feeble abilities, and even fought with it for several hours in Photoshop, only to end up with an image that inevitably looked grainier and shoddier than the original until I was frustrated beyond belief.  I clearly do not possess the necessary talent for making icons. 

Therefore, what I shall do instead is post the original screencap, show you my best attempts at turning it into an icon, and ask if one of you can recreate the image while keeping the resolution sharp and...not like something created in Paint.  Alternatively, I keep looking at the icon and comparing it to others and wondering if it's passable as-is, but then I keep thinking 'no, no, there's got to be a way to make it crisper.  OR IS THERE?'

I don't know anymore.  I just want to be able to put the stupid thing in rotation already!  I have had it saved on my computer for ALMOST A YEAR.

Trying to figure out if there's a better way to go from this, which is overly dark on the left but which I love for the angelic lighting framing Amita's face,

to something like this (was also considering a little heart image in place of 'love')
